The Classic FM Chart - 27 April 2014

The besuited blonde baritone Rhydian is the new chart topper.

The Classic FM Chart has a brand new No. 1 - Welsh baritone Rhydian shoots straight to the top with his album, One Day Like This

The former X Factor finalist's fifth album features him working with the Orchestra of St. John conducted by John Lubbock, delivering a rich mixture of operatic favourites and crossover classics. 

Violinist David Garrett also has a high new entry at No. 2 with another X Factor connection - he duets with judge Nicole Scherzinger on one of the tracks.
